2002 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Wagon (2.8L 6cyl 5M)


I have only had this car for a few
months now, but so far I love it!
Maybe VW has improved on this car since
2000? Either way, it drives smoothly,
is very comfortable (even on long
trips), has great power, is a good size
for the amount of interior space you
get (it's only 4 inches longer than the
sedan), and is a nice looking car -
inside and out. Relatively good gas
mileage on the freeway (~32 mpg), only
so/so on streets (~24 mpg - typical for
a V6 engine though). The manual trans.
V6 wagon is the only Jetta manufactured
in Germany also, so that's a plus! I
definitely recommend it.

Best Features

Engine, steering, seats (very comfortable), sound system, the amount of variability you have with the air vents and wiper speeds, high attention to detail and great design.

Worst Features

The steering wheel blocks part of (at least my) view of the spedometer and tacometer. I would also like the trunk to open when you unlock it, rather than simply unlock (would help when your arms are loaded with gear).
